How is Dyspraxia Treated?

Although there is no cure for Dyspraxia, there are a range of interventions and treatment options which can help to minimise the impact the Dyspraxia is having on the individual's life.

Interventions aim to teach strategies and exercises to help the individual cope with their Dyspraxia in a more manageable way. There are a variety of treatment and intervention options available, these will vary depending on what area of functioning the Dyspraxia is affecting and also the severity of the individual's difficulty.

Different professionals who might be involved in the treatment of Dyspraxia include:

  • Physiotherapist
  • Occupational therapist
  • Speech and language therapist
  • Doctors and other medical staff

The treatment of Dyspraxia involves a team approach in helping the individual reach their full potential. The type of treatment given will vary depending on the specific needs and abilities of the individual with dyspraxia.

Treatment will include advice and exercises on helping individuals to manage their Dyspraxia in their daily tasks. Treatment can also include behaviour modification exercises and strategies. Treatment will focus on areas of functioning which are affected by the Dyspraxia and aims to improve and develop the individual's ability.

Early intervention is crucial for the treatment of Dyspraxia. The sooner an individual is treated and supported for their difficulties caused by Dyspraxia, the better the outcome for the individual will be in increasing their independence and functional ability.
